Pics are visible now. :)
Nasty crash, but it could have been a lot worse. Get a pretty blonde nurse to massage your back several times a day and you'll be up and running in no time at all.

A TZ250 doesn't use a torque arm either and what's good enough for a TZ should also be good enough for a KR. KR caliper bracket and tor...
